Dark Matter Distortion
Dark Matter is the kind of pedal that you wanna go play for half an hour and end up spending half a day with. It's musical, covers a super-wide range of sounds but stays true to its base, an all analog-drive circuit that reminisces plexi sounds with both a classic and modern edge. Dark Matter delivers in spades thanks to a very low compression and a lively response that reacts to your playing at every turn.
Hard to imagine now, but there was a time before digital. If you think about it, many of the best distortion sounds stem from that era. Why? Well, it's the analog circuits, they sound great and got a little more to give when you really punish them - it simply sounds more real, fuller and better. That's the sound we love: dangerous, on the edge yet thoroughly musical. The sound that begs you to play harder, louder, faster and more.
Distortion is great, but control is key. No one wants the ice-pick to the ears or a mushy bass-laden goo. Dark Matter delivers with a bass- and treble knob, perfect for dialing in sounds precisely and lightning fast.
Dark Matter distortion adds extra versatility via a voicing switch that either adds bass for a more modern sound or fills your tone with retro vibes for an old school vintage throwback that oozes classic rock on steroids.
Sound examples by TonePedia
For a pedal that draws from such a wide range of sounds, great controls are essential - Dark Matter nails this by seamlessly switching between a 90s Seattle sound, an early AC/DC crunch and nailing a Van Halen tone in between.
The dark matter mini toggle allows for a cool mid shift that instantly changes from a modern agressive sound to a bit more retro, but still agressive hotrodded type.
There is plenty of gain to suit any kind of musical style, but the sound always stays very open and clear and it will never get muddy or cover up your playing.
Add thundering lows to your riffs and licks - the sweetest part is that this knob is active, allowing you to add or cut and really shape your sound.
For a bit of clarity to complex chords, this is the knob to add some high end sparkle. The fact that this knob is active, makes it easier to precisely shape sounds.
Cranks the level of the distortion. Which is good. A little hair of dirt or full on apocalypse are on tap here.
TC drive pedals offer true bypass. It simply means that no matter what your setup or situation, they give you optimal signal integrity so the 'you' in your playing shines through with unparalleled clarity and definition.
